The construction industry has changed and the law is (working on) catching up.

While traditional construction project delivery methods have been improved and honed, innovative delivery methods have brought about a new landscape of contracts and litigation.

Collaborative projects—especially those with preconstruction design and input by contractors—have given rise to creative agreements that shift duties and responsibilities among the parties.

New technology and risk-management products have further changed common construction contracts as well as the counsel practitioners must give clients.

As the Spearin Doctrine and the AIA’s mutual waiver of consequential damages celebrate their respective anniversaries, this program examines this changing landscape and the ways it impacts the modern construction attorney.

Join attorneys as they discuss the best approaches to drafting agreements for the common (and uncommon) delivery methods, then navigate disputes in the context of these delivery methods and agreements.

Planned by the NCBA Construction Law Section in conjunction with the South Carolina Bar Construction Law Section
